You are a lucky man.  My kids are in no hurry to bless me with Grandkids. 

Enjoy your free time now Darrell, that blessing will surely have you making incomprehensible statements like "It's a beautiful day and I'd love to go fishing with you guys but I have to watch the baby" or "That is the by far the best price I've ever seen for a Winston rod, if only we weren't taking the grand children to Disney next week ..."  Yup that's what happened to me, I don't even know me anymore.  😄

Craft Fur popper

Hook: Mustad Octopus up-eye, #3/0

Thread: Uni-Thread, 6/0

Tail: Select craft fur

Flash: Flashabou

Body: Estaz Grande

Head: Foam popper, medium

Eyes: 3/8" 3D molded 

Finally found my first crawling redfish this weekend. The long craft fur tail gives excellent action in the water with a minimum of movement. Also sits low that makes it easier for the redfish with an underslung jaw to pick it off the top.
